She was a member of the Fellowship Baptist Church in Borger. Bobbie fought a long and hard battle with Alzheimer’s disease, but during that battle she had great care by many talented nurses as well as “her” doctor Kevin Sieck. Many that knew her, know she was a very loyal friend, a wonderful mom, but nothing better than “MeMe” to her grandbabies and great grandbabies.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, Billy John, William Thomas and Sammy Roberts, a special niece Debbie Middough Wheeler, a great grandson, Carder Tate Brown, a great granddaughter, Ariyanna Schreiter and the love of her life Timothy Wayne Garlington. She was also preceded by her in-laws, Lucille and Bluford Garlington, and brother-n-laws, James Garlington and Bill Smith.

Services for Bobbie will be 10 a.m. Saturday, June 2, 2018 at Highland Baptist Church of Pampa, with Pastor Bobbie Bridges of Fellowship Baptist Church and Pastor Paul Nachtigall of Highland Baptist Church of Pampa. Burial will follow at the Stinnett Cemetery under the direction of Minton Chatwell Funeral Directors.

    Even though we didn’t know her that well we love her family! With such sweet stories of her she was a very sweet lady & loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, & friend. God received a special angel that is with her sweetie now & is no longer suffering. You have two very special guardian angels now looking down on you saying thank you Christie, we were & are still loved! All of our love, thoughts, & prayers are with you, Eldon, & the girls along with the rest of your family.

    Love always & God Bless,

    Bobbie,
    May you walk with the angels by your side.
    To the family,
    May your sadness be short as you celebrate your Mother, Sister, and Memes great life. May God lighten your spirits that she is walking with her heavenly family. We are only apart for a short while as we go thru our lives and we all meet in eternity one day soon.
    Bless you all.
    Sincerely Manuel and Pam Loera.
